His Majesty's Theatre, one of London's moat 
magnificent playhouses, was closed Sept. 25 be- 
cause of an omlnoos crack wblcb appeared In 
tbe mat*>le proscenlnm arch. Tbe performance 
of Oliver Twist, in which Beerbohm Tree and 
his company were playing, was about flni^ed 
when the daogeroos crevice was discovered. 
After the performance Mr. Tree appeared Ijefore 
the footlights and announced that Oliver Twist 
woold be transferred to the Waldorf Theatre 
the following evening, stating the reason. The 
sndlence quickly, btrt quietly left the playhouse.

He wishes his daughter to marry a bnsIneBs 
man. and tells Swinger that he will give him 
three months and 920.000 to prove that be

THE new MonUuk Theatre at Living- 
ston street and Hanover place, Brook- 
lyn, N. Y., opened Monday evening, 
Sept. 25, with George Edwarde's pro- 
duction of Tbe Dncbeaa of Pantatc^ 
The magnlOcent playhouse 
Senator Wm. .H. Beynolda. 
■omest theatre In Brooklyn. 

Tbe promise tbat tbe new Uontauk wonld 
represent the blgbeet type ot modem theatre 
building has «>een tnllUled by Senator Beynolda. 
That means a great deal. It means an ad- 
vance npan a long line of handsome predecea- 
sors, for this country leads tbe w^d In tbM- 
trlcal construction. Senatgc ..Baf Mga oe- 
dared that be wonld make IhS , 
In tlie land. ExperU think that r he' hen 
bla word. 

One la immeOiatelr Inpteesed at^tte ve^ 
entrance. Tbe VMv, wbldi ceodilnce both lob^ 
and foyer owing to its airaiigenent, is strik- 
ing, because It difltis ftaaa any otber In the 
metropolla. Bstendtag aa It does trom tbe 
oocner ot UvlBgetOB afreet, where tbe box- 
•■m la located braeatb a dome, it extends 
along the entire width ot the theatre, on Ban- 
over place. Tbe walnacoting la higb and of 
white marlile, with Irregnlar black streaka, 
tbe doors are covered with Morocco leather, 
wblle the frleie and celling are adcmed with 
tellet work. , 

Within the auditorium, artistic symmetry 
and warmth of tone are admirably blended; 
The width of tbe house gives It a ^dona 
aspect, wbUe tbe depth makes It appear cosy 
and brings even the last row of seats Into 
proper relation with the stage. Tbe proecenlnm 
arch is massive and with tbe tMxea forms an 
impressive frame work for tbe stage plctnrea 
that wlU be piesented. 

The color scheme Is red and g«d. Iba 
gold has been used unsparingly, hot with good 
laataw npon the nioacailam arch and bozea, 
Sua (krwalsaieraraKd wttb thick red wat- 
eicd aOk e( apenatre weave. The ^alia are 
npbolatered to ted. the hanging ot tbe boxee 
are red and tlie carpets are green. The effect 
Is that of ridinesa and vrarmtb. 

Above- the proecenlnm are finely wrought 
sjubolle Ogners In relief. No coloring baa 
been applied to these, and as a result tbey 
resemble Ivory carvings upon a large scale. 
An opulence of relief work also cbaractertxes 
tbe treatment of tbe proscenium and boxes. 

Electrlllers of artistic design are In har- 
mony with tbe general scheme of decoration. 
Indeed there la no discordant note discernible. 
Even tbe exit drapery as formerly are cov- 
ered by red plush on tbe inside so as sot to 
mar tbe effect upon tbe eye

Aa a framework for dramatic doings the dl- 
menalona of tb* proscenium opening, whldi is 
39 feet high and 88 teet wide, are considered 
lust Tight. The sUge Itself Is sufficiently 
large to accommodate elaborate productions, 
and It Is equipped with all tbe very latest fa- 
cilities. Twenty Are-proof dressing rooms are 
arranged on tbe IJvlngston street side and are 
finely furnished. Special attention has t>een 
paid to the heating ot the suge, so as to 
obviate tbe discomfort to the audience of a 
blast of cold air when the curtain rises. 

As regards safety, everything that experi- 
ence and Ingenuity could suggest has been 
ntObied. The building Is fiie-proot and is 
equipped with tbe neweet InvenHana to aafe- 
guard the patroaa. -Theie ate -twantrwa

m liit Ihsalie In which this InventlOB baa 
been Inatalled. 

Another new Invention Is the system of reg- 
ulating the sprinkler apparatns designed to 
flood the stage in case of lire. This Is worked 
by an electric button. Advanced m e thoda are 
also employed In the manlpoIatlaa_ ed the, 
electric lights, which play such aa hBgoitant 
part In up-to-date productions. 

The andltorlum will be heated by hot air 
.distributed by a new system. The air wUI be 
forced np under the seats and tbe supply can 
be regulated to a nicety, so tbat the desired 
temperature can be obtained. 

For the convenience ot the patrona there are 
an elegantly furnished letbrlng nam for la* 
dies, a commodious smoking toaB tn men, with 
lavatories. In each the furnishings le p teaent 
the lateat mode. The olBcea are also finely

years in that city, fltially landing In Cbicago In

in Lew Field's Theatre In N'ew Vorlc. "1 Lave

In my work. I have simply followed the dic-

of the prominent popular music composers of 
today, some of tliem have tried to convince me 
that It pays to grows reminiscent. I give uo 
credence to such assertions, and I think tbe 
public will bear me out In tlie statement that 
originality is by Car the more lucrative and

Our attention has 
Kia-nia of Tickets been called repeat- 
edly to the misap- 
propriation of railroad tickets ad- 
vanced for tbe transportation of those 
engaged l>y xvire or correspondence. 
The practice Is one of the most des- 
picable with which managers have to 
deal. It also grives the post-office offi- 
cials much trouble, for it constitutes 
a usage of the mails for false purposes, 
and is punishable by imprisonment. 
On account of tickets not being used 
for tbe purpose they are Intended, 
many managers have adopted the rule 
not to advance ttaem under any cir- 
cumstances; but this, also, has its in- 
conveniences, as actors and perform- 
ers are often loath to incur any per- 
sonal expense until tbey are satisfied 
that the engagement has been entered 
Into with gooa taltb on the part of the 
managers. Therefore there seems to be 
ample space for argimient on both 
sides of the question. Not all per- 
formers nor all manag^ers aire honest 
and fair. Tbe fact la zegrettable, but 
It atandiL-.' Still .<lMi»'<>aiM' to- some 
wioona of x«mb'rtiv tbe' chance of loss

on the issue and adopt a method ' by 
which, through an arrangement with 
the railroad companies^ transportation 
may be guaranteed to the right parties,

In a recent 
interview with 
a representative 

Bell baa csuAt the eoaeeptlon ot tbe author 
admirably. Wiat la' funnier — and more pa- 
tbetle to dMntereited oo-looken — than tbe con- 
dUlona of the hen-peeked hwriiand. 

The plot deala with the nacblnatlooB ot a 
anddenly enriched matron to marry her daugh- 
tera into high society. . . Mrs. Plpp (Helen 
T*acy) Is a second Mrs. Malaprop. Her muti- 
lation of the French langnase Is Indlcroos. 
tbougb not always amnslng. Lite the char- 
acter Itself It Is greatly eiaggerated. Tbe clev- 
erness of the lines aafTers somewhat In this 
respect also. For Instance, when Mr. Plpp 
tells ot his courtship with the present Mrs. 
Plpp In her father's little shanty on the banks 
of the Ohio river, he says that be OUI SUU le- 
member that her back-balr always MDelt of

tbat might well tarn the plot of a Theodore 
Kremer play. It seems stniiigely ont of place 
in a piece where the character dellneatlao has 
predominated tbrongb tbe two earlier acts. 

On the whole, tbe attraction ts most pleas- 
ing. One forgets the last act In remembering 
the subtlety of 'the homer — the humor whlcb 
Dlgby Bell brings ont so arUsUcaUy. We can 
not Imagine what Hr. Plpp would t>e like with- 
out the present star. 

W. St. Clalr In the character ot Count 
Ctaarmarot Is convincing, and looks his part to

cause the ertttCs make it so. No play 
is ever quite as excellent as some- 
thing that has been done before — if we

Dog meat comes high In Ijeatngtaa. Sir. 
It all came to light last week daring tbe slntl 
fair. The Igcrrotes. under the nAnagement of 
Dr. T. K. Hont, with the Heck Catnlral Co. 
set up a bowl for dog. Old Eentncky bautbon 
conld not be relished wlthont dog meat. Dog 
they wanted and dog they most hare. Dr, 
Hnnt told his troubles to Mr. Beck. Mr. Heck 
called np Secretary Bain of tlie fair associa' 
tlon- Mr. Bain telephoned tbe dog catcher for 
a nice, pinmp canine. But the canine catcher 
waa oat— oot of dogs. The doctor became grave. 
Bfe was In for tcooble. for thoae aaxagaa with 
ilaai la their noaes and a thitat ft* dog in 
ibsir atoaueha, aeaat ttoKble.

he looked oot the window. Behold, a little, ooe- 
eyed, black and tan doggie waa coming ont e( 
the alley, with a bone In his mooth and wag- 
ging— no, be was talUess. Be waa following 
his master, a little bare-footed coon, black as a 
crow, whistling one of George Cohan's song

Then the doctor got busy. It was a shsme,

Bnt the doctor had yet the flddler — or rather

When this amendment was offered 
It was stated that In case of epidemic

the place of meetlngr to be changed on

Oood enoufh reason, and the amend-

In the convention — the real reason for 
the offering of the amendment.

Host billposters win understand 
that when a meeting- of the Associa-

yiace the attendance is limited to those 
who ean afford to paiy for transporta-

Now. as a matter of Cact, the gang 
do not want the small-town billposter 
to attend the convention and help 
them make the rules. That is why 
nearly all the conventions are held in 
the east where high transportation

contains information that has cost me many a dollar, and whicii I never could have written except for my long 
and varied experience in the concessionery and kindred fields. In this Letter of Advice I cover every point that I 
think will be of value to you, and is alone worth more than I ask for my liigliest priced oven. Then 1 wive you a 
Spiel that will bring the coin vour wav. And last, but not least, my Formula is worth a ten dollar William of any 
man's money. Furthermore I* take care of yoo and jgive you pointeis St any and att_tlBie% and Otberwise aasist yea

Which was scheduled to arrive some six weeks ago, iHit 
transit. The French exporters realizing the lateness of the i 
gnuned us to sell the confetti for their account at 

•wmhhB Cents the Pound 

This is a very Unusuai Snap for Streetmen. For this confetti is 
worth fully SO per cent, more than the domestic goods. It is brighter In 
colors, cleaner sad ■IroM up wi» ttdky ; aS eambpeidnaelvrwei^t, la ap- 

pearence, looks as \ilg as a 10 eent one of the domestJe atnlf. ^nd your 
order early, for this lot won't last long. 


The Confetti Duster we offer has no superior nor equal in the market, when 
its make up, quality and size is considered. It is 16 inches long.

twenty years aaa ataa I drat came to this

kind of aa Inatnaient I waa telnglng tor-

waa simidy a mnsical tBStmneat. Mow aU 
that la chansed. In every amall town in the 
United Statea aad Caaida can be fonad a cote- 
rie of mnsic lovers. 'Orchestras flourish every- 
wh* re. and from these ranks are taken indi- 
viduals n-ho have become prominent In tbe mu- 
sic world. And yet we are tiehlnd the conn- 
tries of Eniape from the fact that we have tew 
n-bo foster tbe arts as on the other side. Fsr 
Instance, Wagner would never have developed 
Into the mighty giant he is now consid red 
had It not- been for the patronage of King 
Lndwlg of Bavaria. He encouraged him and 
stimulated him at the period of his greatest 
depresi^Ion. Haydn, tbe fatb<T of symphony, 
bad the same protection. He himself said 
that bad It not been for tbe protection of 
Prince Esterhazy most ot bis great cojnpo^- 
tions would not have befn written. Tbe prince 
provided him with an orchestra of suitable 
size for tbe production of his efforts, sup- 
ported It and kept It together constantly: la- 
deed. It was part of the prince's household, 
and Ha%-dn thus bad tbe necessary Incentive 
to write. This Is why 1 say .\merlca is still 
behind the continental countries In respect to 
caring for art in a geo«^l way. Capital is 
massed more In this country, and its Influ- 
ence on art has not been distributed as It 
eventually will he. In Germany and Austria, 
parts of Russia and France, theatres are sup- 
ported either by tlie munlclpalltjr or b.v weal- 
thy art lovers. Some day this will be true 
in Am- rlca for wherever 1 go 1 see a healthy

Mr. Deliorls' act eoosists o( artlatle, and. above

the title of tbe greatest of all marfcamen. Oe- 
I.orls makes his appearance on the stage with 
two assistants, and proceeds to do faoey 
shooting, one of the aasUtsnts holding up min- 
iature Clay balls which are broken between bis 
Angers. The marksman then goes to the bal- 
cony from where he extlngaUbes with light- 
ning rvpidity twelve candles, arranged six la 
a row upon the stage. Again on the stage 
DeLoris passes ballets throogb finger rings 
held between the fingers of an assistant. Shoot- 
ing twenty-five bullseyea in nine seconds, an- 
other of his feata. appeara impossible, but It 
Is made a fact by DeLoris. By that time tbe 
audience Is willing to concede that DeLoris' 
dalm to the title Is correct, hot they are even

Tbe snmmer season Is off and the winter 
bnslne&B well nnder way In Colorado, and. after 
a few weeks of tbe latter, the conclusion has 
been formed that tbia winter «lll hr the most 
pruStable tbe theatrical prufessloo bas ever en- 
joyed lo tbls part of tbe ILiowvelt doinaln. 

Throughout the state s few county fairs are

In Denver all tbe bonses see open and doing 
an Immense buaioess. Jtrim Oort's new thea- 
tre, tbe Empire, has bad a gnod mo of bnr- 
les>]ne nnder tbe manssrawnt ot J. E. Cllffunl 
who resigned tbe posltloB of news editor of 
the Post, an evening paper owned by Tammen 
and Bonflls. owners of tbe Floto Sbow. Clif- 
ford was general manager ot the Plato Shnw 
one season when It was Jost bnddlDC into a 
real amns^metit enterprise- He bas also done 
dramatic criticism work on the local papers, and 
Is looked upon as a most valoable discovery 
by Cort. A good bnslnesa man, fairly well 
versed In amnsement bnslness and a niral good 
fellow make up the general characteristics of 
the Empire's manager, and as he has every 
newspaper man In the city behind him wishing 
onqoallfled success, the chances are the new 
boose wUI not get lert lo Uie rnnnlng. 

Tbe Shnberts were on the books to open a 
new theatre In Denver this season, bnt the 
led. althoneh the rault was not

Tbe Broadway and TalM» Grand bonaea ai* 
botb doing capacity business with a decided 
gain In the class of attractions over former 
years. Tlie coming ot ontslders Into the field 
so long cxintrollpj by these two bouses has 
prodded the trust Into giving s little more 
for tbe 15 per cent., and. In re tnm. tbe re- 
mittances on said pen^nlagr show a snbstao- 
rfal Increase. Denver people slwsys have money 
for good amasements, sod are easily divorced 
from their coin. 

ITie Orphenm Is doing even better than last 
season, so far as box-oSlce receipta show, and 
the qnallty of amusement offered la np-to-date 
In every respect. Resident Manager F. B. Hen-

Changes on tbe Orpbenm . stage have come 
with nnwelcome frennency thla season. 1. C. 
Murphy, stage manager of. the New Orleans 
bonse, was transferred here dsrlng the yellow 
fever panic and last week was ordered tiack 
to tbe swamps. There was almost a strike ol 
the stage crew who tried to plan aome kind
